Samples of sediment were collected from 3 different discharge point (Ceyhan River. Payas Stream, Arsuz Brook) spilled into the Gulf of iskendenin. The concentrations of heavy metals (Zn. Cd. Pb, Cu. Fe. Cr) were determined by using Microwave Plasma-Atomic Emission Spectrometry (MP-AES) AGILENT 4100 after applying the appropriate method based on heavy metals. As a result of the analyses physicochemical Arsuz Brook, Payas Stream and Ceyhan River water temperature 12.15-26,00 °C, salinity %o0.20-1.80 dissolved oxygen 5.40-10.75 mgl1, electrical conductivity 316-742 fiS/cm. pH 6.00-8,15 were fastened down. Heavy metal accumulation levels in the sediment were determined Fe>Cr>Zn>Cu>Pb>Cd in Arsuz brook, Fe>Zn>Pb>Ci>Cu>Cd in Payas stream and Fe>Cr>Zn>Cu>Pb>Cd Ceyhan river. The results of this study showed that high accumulation levels in sediment were determined Fe while low accumulation levels Cd. © by PSP.
